Trader Joe’s 12th Annual Customer Choice Awards are in, and we’ve taken that list and organized it into our ultimate family favorites. From kid-friendly snacks to easy entrées, scroll through to view the best winners and finalists. 

But first, check out the category winners below:  

  • Favorite overall: Mandarin Orange Chicken 
  • Favorite vegan/vegetarian item: Soy Chorizo 
  • Favorite cheese: Unexpected Cheddar 
  • Favorite beverage: Sparkling Black Tea With Peach Juice Beverage
  • Favorite snack: Salted Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets
  • Favorite produce: Teeny Tiny Avocados
  • Favorite entrée: Mandarin Orange Chicken
  • Favorite home, bath and beauty product: Scented Candles

Our favorite snack for kids

Who can argue with the winner of this category, the Salted Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets? The peanut butter packs some protein into this salty snack. Our favorite runner-up from the snack category has to be the Organic Corn Chip Dippers. For young kids who love a good chip-dip, these are a convenient and tasty option.  

Our favorite sweet treat for kids

In this pandemic world, going out for an ice cream cone is a little more … complicated. That’s why we love Trader Joe’s Hold the Cone! Mini Ice Cream Cones, a runner-up on the sweet treat list, but number one in our hearts. 

Our favorite entrée for kids

We’ll take anything on the entrée list, thank you very much. From the winning Mandarin Orange Chicken to the Chicken Tikka Masala runner-up, TJ’s always has our back in the convenient dinner department. That said, if we had to choose our favorite, there’s nothing more comforting and kid-pleasing than Joe's Diner Mac 'n Cheese. 

Our favorite cheese for kids

Can we take a moment to thank TJ’s for including this all-important category in their awards competition? The runners-up are all cheeses with style: Baked Lemon Ricotta, Wild Blueberry & Vanilla Chèvre, English Cheddar With Caramelized Onions and Creamy Toscano Soaked in Syrah. For kids, we prefer the winner: Unexpected Cheddar. It’s the most versatile option, and sure to please even the pickiest of kiddos. 

Our favorite vegan/vegetarian food for kids

TJ’s Vegan Banana Bread With Walnuts is a runner-up that’ll please anyone! But if you’re looking for a dinner recommendation, you can’t beat Vegetable Fried Rice or the winner of this category: Soy Chorizo.
